Vancouver, Aug. 5.-Discouraged and in search of pastures ne.v, Charles H. Hatfield, the man who unsuccessfully tried to make the rain fall alike on the just and unjust in the KJundi)>e gold ' camps, arrived in Vancouver this morning on the steamer Princess licatricc from Skagway. Mr. Batfteld, who was acconn4>anind by his brother, Paul A, Hatfield, ild not tarry long in the city. He was bound for Seattle, and wjU arriv there tonight. As a raihm'akcr, Mr. Hatfield may bo all right in Ljdn Angeles, but Ills services in the Yukon did not meet with the sympathy of the weather boss who held off tbe rain clouds. '�^ Or.

It brings renew-t Ml^ Pl)�f4�(li; ^iMAinv ambition �ni v^r, to .�i;d him. not to discharge his men for having Joined the union. Mr. Nais-mith said he would not. and also ut that meeting Mr. Naismith gave Mr. Patterson to understand that he would consider a proposition from tbe men on similar lines to what then existed in the dUtrict between other coal companies and their men, and that he would place same before the board of directors for their consideration. An agreement was formulated by Mr. Patterson, J. R. 8t 13!J?�ia JO ?aapfSA�d-03?A waivo and a Committee of the men employed by the Company. This was presented by J. B. Calvin and Mr. Patterson in person to Mr. Naismith, he sai'd he would give them an answei; the next morning at ten o'ctock.;-rneatatives of his employees as united body.. Mr. Nalsmith's answer torthl's was. '^you say youiare. but I don't .Jmow.r'jraowler to giv* Mr Naismith the infonnaiion there wivs a iaSstinii called on,the 0th of March at which thwe. wore over five huh-dre^, of the,employees of the Company piweat.- They appointed commlttss. to* watt bn, Mr. Naismith and inforta li)m that said Patterson and Galvin; w 'their reprewentat -ives. and wished him to deal with them. To this he said he would receive Messrii. Patterson and Galvin with a conundttee of his employees and discuss the matter. The committee with Messrs. Galvin and Patterson again presented their proposed agreement with scale of wages and conditions that they were willing to work under. This he said he would consider carefully and wished the committee to call again next day. The committee called as requested and Mr. Naismith said after going over their proposals in detail, there were four articles in their proposed agreement that must be eliminated before he could consider it. He was. asked by J. B. Galvin what those four clauses were. 1. Recognition of the Union, a. Run of Mine Basis. 8. Eight hour day. 4. Minimum rate of wages for miner's working in abnormal places. He was told that the first could not be~ eliminatiBd. the second might be adjusted, also the third might be considered, the fourth was in defence of competent miners and therefore could not be eliminated, litis conference closed and a meeting called on the Sth of March by Vice-Preai -dent Oalvia, all employees being present, also President Sherman of District 18. who had on the 7th tried to open negotiations with Mr. Naiji -mith by letter in which he failed to receive an aaswer. The men then decided to suspend operatfons and bring out their tools until the Company was ifl^y to treat with them as a united body. They notified the Company to that effect through President Sherman, from that time forward, the Company ha\e waged an open war by first getting their property polieed. second installing box cars for the purpose of housing men and trying to work their mines, but so, far this has been a failure The next overture was made by the ministers of iethbrldgc, as wishing to become mediators betv*een the Company and the men. This prop -osition was accepted By President Sherman in behalf of the m?n, and rejected by the Company. Again the men wrote to Mr. E. T. Gait, President of the Com|iany. and Mr. A.M. Nanton, Managing Director, laying the matter clearly before them. To this the men reeeived an answer, but In their answer the Company wished an abject surrender of the men without redress of grievances. The men were afterwards approached by a committee of the tradesmen of the town who asked them to si>o Mr. Nanton In person, was then in Lethbridge. The men did so, and after a conversation with that gentleman, which brought no results, the men then propo8e-im't the following us a means of ending the dispute now existing nt your company's mines. 1. That a conunltteo composed of four arbitrators l>c appointed, two to Imj appointed by the Company and two to !� appointed by the men now on strike. 2. The arbitrators so appointed to have full power to agree upon con ditions of labor, wage.rica with this introduction from the world's greatest modern composer, "the tooe poet of the North." ' "It gives mo great pleasure to inr troducc my compatriot. Miss Olivia Dahl, to the American people. She is a most capable singer and possesses, a beautiful and most sympath ctic voice. She moves with surpassing ease in the domain of song literature, interpreting with equal intelligence the varied sentiments of the art song and popular ballad, i feel confident that Miss Dahl with her attractive personality wilt win the sympathy and appreciation of music-loving circles in the far West. 'EDV.\RD GREIG." Yours truly. Under all ordinary circumstances such an artist as Olivia Dahl could only be heard in the world's great centres of population and ot art! A peculiar combination of circum -stances gives the rare treat of her niusic to the small interior communities of this-province audit ii sincerely to be hoped that the opportunity will be appreciated at its high worth. Miss Dahl has lost heavily in the San Francisco horror. She has recently Come under the professional management of C. U; Gibbons, who last season broiight Jean Gerardy. the world's greatest cellist to the coast, and who is Himself a loyal western Canadian. She could not afford in consequence of her California experience to rnjb.v the usual summer lay-ofL of the professional singer. She wanted to see something of British Columbia and its sister province while she was in the North. And so it came about that the present little tour was proposed in connection with which the people of I.iethbridge will enjoy a concert by Miss Dahl, and her associate artist Miss Gina Smith, a brilliant pianiste and daughter of the famous Frau Anna StA>m-Smith on the evening of Thursday, Aug. 16. It is to be hoped that Miss Dahl will be greeted by a crowded, house for there are few greater singers in the world today, and the critics are agreed that she w-ll be the next notable mtwical sensation- or "discovery" as the impressarios term it-in America's art circles.
